abstract

As humans today so often relate to people who are not physically present and to media governed by code, this essay proposes that in a performance without humans acting, the audience might find more sensory connection than with the human actor at the centre of it. Looking into what is left once the human actor is not present, this study will focus on the notion of hauntology and landscape and how the two might be entangled. It explores how past, present, and future come together in the space of a performance, as well as the notion of landscape as a model to organise our thoughts and performance setting. These notions are difficult to grasp. Perhaps only through practice, can we rehearse and come to further understanding.
